Still excellent

We hadn't planned on visiting Yanagi, but our cruise ship was delayed so we made the detour with friends who are particular about their sushi. They were impressed with the quality of this small restaurant, and we happily ordered the specials, and several rolls. Try the churashi.

Ordered take away twice during my 5 days stay in Redondo Beach. Would have eaten at the restaurant too but due to tired 9 months baby, we chose to take it home. Sushi was delicious, tasted absolutely wonderful and the staff's recommendations were the best we had. Prices are very good for the quality you get.

I'm not a sushi guy but Yanagi has lots of dishes that knock it out of the ballpark. They do excellent work with the tempura and basic sushi. But where they really excel is in some of their more complex dishes. For example they do cooked lobster pieces on top of sushi that is awesome. They also have great dishes... More

I ate here while staying in Torrance for business and loved it. Really small, but cool ambiance and excellent service. I travel the upper fifty weekly and love to find small Mom n Pop sushi places like this one. Had a couple of delicious and unique rolls here and will definitely come back on future projects to sample some more.... More

I can't think of another Sushi restaurant where I have had better sushi than here at Yanagi. I am not talking about their normal sushi rolls--- which are just that --normal and ordinary, just like all the other places. However, their speciality rolls are fantastic--- full of flavour and different-- definitely distinct. Everything I have tried, as well as my... More

My husband and I first went to Yanagi two weeks ago for a date night. The place is small, but the ambiance and decor are fabulous for a nice night out. The menu had LOTS of sushi options and a pretty decent selection of sake. We liked everything so much we went back last weekend again. Great place. I really... More

I was introduced to Yanagi over 4 years ago and I still consider it my favorite sushi in the country. Friends I've taken here even agree with me on my claim so if you're wondering, yes, the sushi is that good. It's a small place that you may miss but it's well worth turning around to get to. You can... More

I loved their sushi, I live close by and I didn't know that there's a really good sushi restaurant close to my house.

Small narrow restaurant - almost qualifies as a "hole in the wall, but great food. Shared dishes with DH & DD and 7 dishes were plenty for lunch. Excellent - toro sashimi, salmon avocado roll, short rib roll & crab roll. Good - seaweed salad, OK - crab hand roll - oil wasn't hot enough, so the soft shell crabs... More

Our party of three enjoyed tasty sushi and non-traditional Japanese food. Rather a small place, it was still quite a nice place to experience high quality sushi. Having observed other dishes coming from the kitchen, I felt the presentation was good...made your mouth water. Some have comments not to get the table near as it is cld and drafty. I... More
